Claudia, I'm so sorry for your loss.  You have done everything you can to
restore her health and to make her as comfortable as you could.  Sometimes,
we just have to take comfort in that, even though your heart aches terribly
from your loss.  You didn't do anything to hasten her transition, and she
surely is thankful for your love and devotion.  Bless you for caring so
much.

We will light a candle in Southern California tonight in her memory...also
for your healing.  

Sara

Subject: [Felvtalk] My cat Cheshire crossing over

My sweet, beautiful little Cheshire crossed the rainbow bridge last
Wednesday 
night.  She had only been sick for less than 10 days.  She was on
antibiotics 
and some pred for 10 days for gum problems.  I was going to schedule her
for a 
cleaning in a few weeks, but her health seemed to decline a few days after 
that.  She started hiding under the bed, and not eating, when seh came out,
I 
saw a growth on her throat area, adn took her to the vet.  They weren't sure
if 
it was a abcess or worse. I took her back seveveral times over the course of
6 
days, she had to be given fluids through IV, and I syringe fed her.  I've
never 
been through anything like this before.  I was praying for her.  On
wednesday 
they told me they couldn't do surgery to remove the cyst 'cause she was so 
anemic and her blood count was so low, it looked like she had leukemia.  The

only thing to do was bring her home or try to get her more help at the vet 
hospial where they have cancer specialists for a transfusion.  I brought her

there.  They had an extensive list of treatment for her, and costs.  It was 
stressful.  


I gave them permission for treatment and a deposit before they could do 
anything.  They told me she started to go into distress when put in the
Oxygen 
tank and tube, I wanted them to do whatver they could to help her, and
Cheshire 
blinked at me when I was in the room with her right next to her.  She wasn't

really blinking before that as whe had a tube in her mouth that was helping
her 
breath.    

This was so painful for me.  Her heart gave out, and that's how she went.  I

don't know if anyone on here has been through anything like this, but I've 
wondered if by brining her to that hospital and trhing to get here more help
to 
stabilize her for a transfusion caused her more distresss that lead to her 
passing?  I've talked to the doctors who told me no, that didn't do it, she
was 
just very sick,a nd even if i'd brought her home, she would haev
onyl survived a 
few days or 24 hours.  I even had jsut bought the Mega C plus which I had
heard 
good things about reversing felv.  

I told her how much I love her and she knows that until I see her again.
